Handicap Information
Carriages are a great way for handicapped or disabled people to experience the French Quarter. If they can walk up steps with assistance, they will be able to board our carriages with ease. We do provide stepping stools and assistance. For people with no mobility, no ability to stand, these people may not be able to access the seat of the carriage. Our private carriages are more open air, so there is more ability for these individuals to be placed into those carriages, or larger people. Wheelchairs, strollers, and walkers can be left behind at our Jackson Square boarding location, and our on-site supervising manager will look after them. We suggest that all important items be taken on the ride.

Cancellation Policy
Customers may cancel at least 72 hours prior to their arrival date and time to receive a full refund minus a $5 service fee. Customers that cancel after the 72 hour period will not be eligible for a refund. The carriages are covered and therefore operate rain or shine, but if weather is severe and the vendor calls of the tour you may be rescheduled for a later time/date or a full refund will be issued. No-shows will not be refunded. Customer may make changes to the reservation without any fees as long as it's outside the 72 hour cancellation period. Tour directors of large groups must make sure the group is on time for scheduled pick-ups.

    Not as described

    We took the Royal Carriage History & Haunts Nightime Carriage Tour. The Royal Carriage website states as what to expect - Ghosts, Pirates, VooDoo, Death, Haunted Restaurants & Haunted Hotels. Our tour guide -I don't recall her name- was quite nice & did seem knowledgeable about the couple of haunted restaurants & hotels she took us past. Some ghosts, no Pirates, no VooDoo, no 1800's massacre as listed under 'Death'. It was a pleasant carriage ride through the French Quarter with what I would describe as a few 'fun facts' which was OK but nothing like what's described on their website & not what we wanted.

    Great time!

    Hannah was a fun guide, full of information. We took our 12 & 17 yr old on a leisurely stroll around the quarter. It's worth the time and money just to give your feet a break and learn tid bits of history you may not pick up elsewhere. Definitely nice alternative to walking in the summer heat & humidity.
